Install it via the repositories.

sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

I'd try the following: from Synaptic, check if gnash (a FOSS flash "replacement") is installed; mark it (gnash, the mozilla plugin for gnash, and gnash common) for total removal, hit apply. Then, install flash-plugin-nonfree from Synaptic, and see if that gets you where you want to be.

The standard method is to visit a site with Flash and follow the Install Missing Plugins drop-down message.
